Scintilla Editor experiment

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I have got a code snippet from Scintilla's website.  The code is for creating a scintilla control in visual basic. I have altered it and did some experiment with it in AutoIt. After some failed attempts, i got succeeded in creating a simple scintilla cotrol in my gui. That experiement raises a lot of questions in my mind. Some of them are i am asking.

1. So we are cretaing scintilla as a child window ?. I thought that it is a control. 

2. No.. not any more. This is my code. I am seeking guidance and advices to learn more about this. Thanks in advance.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>

Local $h__MainGUI = GUICreate("Window", 500, 400, -1, -1)
GUISetState()
Local $h__THisGUI = WinGetHandle($h__MainGUI)
Local Const $SCI_START = 2000
Local Const $SCI_ADDTEXT = $SCI_START + 1
Local Const $SCI_SETSELBACK = $SCI_START + 68

Local $h__sciDLL = _WinAPI_LoadLibrary("E:\2014 Softwares\KE editor\SciLexer.dll")
Local $h__sciWnd = _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx($WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "Scintilla", "TEST",BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VISIBLE),0,0,480,380,$h__THisGUI,0)
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_SETSELBACK, 1 )
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_ADDTEXT, 16, "This is Vinod")

While 1
    $hMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $hMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Au3Info can tell you that.

 the dll internally first register an Scintilla class using RegisterClassExW then use RegisterClassExA to  create the window\control.

Yes. And we can treat it as our own control in that GUI. 

Now, i am reading the documentation.

Yes Look:

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>
Global Const $__EDITCONSTANT_WM_SETTEXT = 0x000C
Local $h__MainGUI = GUICreate("Window", 500, 400, -1, -1)
GUISetState()
Local $h__THisGUI = WinGetHandle($h__MainGUI)
Local Const $SCI_START = 2000
Local Const $SCI_ADDTEXT = $SCI_START + 1
Local Const $SCI_SETSELBACK = $SCI_START + 68

Local $h__sciDLL = _WinAPI_LoadLibrary("SciLexer.dll")
Local $h__sciWnd = _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx($WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "Scintilla", "TEST",BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VISIBLE),0,0,480,380,$h__THisGUI,0)
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_SETSELBACK, 1 )
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_ADDTEXT, 16, "This is Vinod")

_GUICtrlEdit_SetText($h__sciWnd,"Hola Mundo. AutoIt Rocks")

While 1
    $hMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $hMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _GUICtrlEdit_SetText($hWnd, $sText)
    If Not IsHWnd($hWnd) Then $hWnd = GUICtrlGetHandle($hWnd)

    _SendMessage($hWnd, $__EDITCONSTANT_WM_SETTEXT, 0, $sText, 0, "wparam", "str")
EndFunc   ;==>_GUICtrlEdit_SetText

Documentation says that to use WM_NOTIFY message to work with scinitlla control. They gave an example c++ code to do it. But i just check it with an ordianry WM_COMMAND function in GUIRegisterMsg. As if it s an edit control in my gui. It worked, but it gave output twice to me. I don't know why.

@Danyfirex Please tell me about the const $__EDITCONSTANT_WM_SETTEXT. help file says that it is "Msg to send to control (Number). And in the example they used $WM_SYSCOMMAND. I am confused a little.

Show your code :)

It's just for send text to a control https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms632644(v=vs.85).aspx

Pretty sure somebody else has create an editor in AutoIt using Scintilla and posted about it in the forum. Maybe look for that.

Also ISN AutoIt Studio is based on Scintilla.

No no. I mean what it use internally. maybe how to reproduce that using sendmessage. then I will look inside to check that message because I think It should be a predefined message.

That is the same message, but obviously there need to be multiple options in au3.api for it to trigger that version.

      I use a monospace font for editing AutoIt scripts in SciTE (currently, CourierNew 9pt). Regardless of what font size I set in the configuration, when I start SciTE to resume editing the script text is one size smaller than I specified. When I type Ctrl+<numpad-slash> the text changes to the desired size. The same is true of the output pane, and I have to reset the size for both areas every time I start SciTE.
      IIRC, I've made few other changes to the configuration (e.g., changed the search highlight color and disabled Tidy), so this behavior seems odd. About SciTE says it's version 3.6.0 (Aug. 4, 2015).
      Any idea how to fix this?

      As they're opinion-based to some degree; how are AutoIt's best practices decided and do suggestions get considered?
      Some suggestions :
      For...To...Step...Next -loop variable-naming like $iN ($i1, $i2, etc.) : conforms to recommended naming convention, identifies level (albeit inverted to ExitLoop and ContinueLoop's convention) and enables SciTE selection-highlighting (requires minimum of 3 characters). Minimize logic in global scope, separate data & settings from logic, use of vertical space, project organization (folder structure, resource- and include file management). Example (loop variable-naming, minimizing logic in global scope and separation of settings from logic) :
      #include <Array.au3> Global Enum $RANDOM_RETURNFLOAT, _ $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER Global Enum $EXITCODE_NONE Global Const $g_sChar0 = '-' Global Const $g_sChar1 = '+' Global Const $g_iAmountX = 10 Global Const $g_iAmountY = $g_iAmountX Main() Func Main() Local $aArray[$g_iAmountY][$g_iAmountX] For $i1 = 0 To $g_iAmountY - 1 For $i2 = 0 To $g_iAmountX - 1 $aArray[$i1][$i2] = Random(0, 1, $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER) ? $g_sChar1 : $g_sChar0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Exit $EXITCODE_NONE EndFunc Example (project organization) :
      + project_folder + bak [backup files] + bin [distributed binaries and dependencies] + inc [non-standard include files] + res [resource files (icons, file+install files, etc.)] + usr [configuration files, databases, etc.] - script.au3 - script.exe Example (use of vertical space) :
      Func _DigitalRoot($iNum) Local $sNum = '' Local $aNum While $iNum > 9 $sNum = String($iNum) $aNum = StringSplit($sNum, '') $iNum = 0 For $i1 = 1 To $aNum[0] $iNum += Int($aNum[$i1]) Next WEnd Return $iNum EndFunc

      Is it possible to open file(s) in scite in read only mode ?
      If so, How ?
       
      Thnx

      I installed AutoIt to my computer 3 days ago...and have invested the last 3 days learning how to use it.
      As learned in the tutorials, whenever opening I new file in Scite editor I'd immediatley save the file
      I left the Scite Editor open for the past 3 consecutive days on my laptop
       
      No problem
       
      Today I closed Autoit for the first time, restarted my computer, and opened up the Scite Editor
      Now whenever I try to save a file I am prevented from doing so because I apparently don't have permission!?  
      And whenever I try to run any of the programs I've created over the past 3 days now I keep getting annoying popup notifications before I run them
       
      Problem
       
      To go around the issue, I copied a program originally saved in the AUtoIt folder to another folder (since I was barred from saving it in it's original AutoIt location)
      NOw when I run the code the mouse coordiantes are all off
      and I still get that pesky notification whenever I try to run a program
       
      Big Problem!!!
      Anyone have any clue why I'm going through this BS?
       
      1. I checked my User settings and YES I am the administrator on this cpu
      2. I tried to de-select the "read only" attribute for the AutoIt folder (everytime after doing this successfully the folder immediately and automatically reverts back to "read only")
       
      Any help would be MOST appreciated. I've attached screen shots of the annoying bus I keep getting
